Buddha Bowl

August 7, 2017

Looking for a fresh, new meal? We all get into cooking ruts and need inspiration! Check out this scrumptious Buddha Bowl! It’s packed with protein and bursting with flavor. There’s quinoa, crispy chickpeas, mixed greens, avocados and a mouthwatering red pepper sauce.

First off… what IS quinoa and how do you even pronounce it? KEEN-wah—see that’s not so bad. Now you’re a total health-food pro. Quinoa is a superfood! It’s a grain that’s gluten free, high in protein and fiber, and amazingly contains ALL 9 essential amino acids. It’s similar in constancy to rice. There are three main types: white, red and black. They’re all delicious!
